headgdhead,I'm 51 years old and have not lead a sheltered life.The practices of some of those organizations are very animated,just look at all the wars taking place and see who is fighting who and why,or ask a woman walking into an abortion clinic being harangued by some believers if it is dogma or some very animated cretin screaming horrible things at her.Being well read and intelligent I'm very cautious of anything or anyone telling me they have the"answers".As for your reference to "St. Jerry" I usually don't look to junkie guitar players who made a mess of their own life for guidance in mine,so the relevance or importance of anything he has to say is lost on me and it's inclusion in this discussion I find puzzling.As for you sir,I think you are a presumptuous,offensive asshole and I certainly don't need your perspective on philosophy.

Well now I guess it's not only those with Christian beliefs that are intolerant and harmful.

I like the way you try to twist the argument from beliefs to "practices" in an attempt to validate your original post. Just so we're clear beliefs are inamimate, practices are man made actions and are animated. Thank you for agreeing with my point.

51 years and all you can do is call names like a 15 year old. Are you sure you're not also dyslexic?

hedgehead,you can split hairs about beliefs and practices ,what concerns me is the effect their practicing their interpretation of Christian or other cultist beliefs as on the society I am part of.I choose to meet their intolerant and evil ideals with a similar intolerance and total lack of respect for their all they represent,which is how they deserve to be dealt with since in reality that's how they treat people not of their mind.As for the name calling I guess in effect calling me a young=stupid or unlearned,or sheltered=stupid or unlearned wasn't name calling.While my reply was crude,I'll stand by it you are an asshole.I don't have the desire to discuss this any further,being that it is a true waste of my time.

Actually I'm nothing at all like them,but in matters concerning their religious beliefs I am unbending in my rejection of their beliefs.In some cases it is not alright to say everyone has a right to their beliefs because their beliefs have a negative effect on our society as a whole.It retards scientific growth,it fosters unacceptable attitudes towards women,gay people and people who don't agree with their twisted ideals.I see no real difference between religious organizations and groups like the Ku Klux Klan and while I agree they have every right to exist and live how they see fit,I surely don't have to sit back and let them impact my life negatively.I feel a harsh and rigid refusal to bend to their mindset is the only answer to the myriad of problems these deviants present.If you see fit to twist that into my being just like them so be it,but in fact it could not be farther from the truth.All you live and let live people just sit back with that attitude,and let them slowly twist our world.

Very well said, JL; I for one think you need little help...certainly none from the likes of us here at this board.

Well I guess suggesting that we refuse to knuckle under to the religious right in this country deems me worthy of needing help.I can understand this coming from someone delusional enough to defend and be a member of the Catholic church, The religious entities in this country are a powerful force and if left unchecked are going to shove their beliefs down our throats.

Arbuthnot,thanks for pointing out my error,I did just what you inferred and saw an "a" where there wasn't one.The JL abbreviation also threw me off as I thought WT was referring to headgdhead by his real initials not my stupid password name shortened to JL.To Mr. Tell I apologize for my stupidity in misreading your post,and edited my response to leave you out.I at times can be stupid and a card carrying member of the asshole club.
